The Procession, with their soaring choruses and meaty guitar riffs, are a 4 piece Alternative Indie band based in the Midlands. After hearing their last well received single ‘Sometimes’ and now with ‘Sun Comes Around’ it is no surprise they have a strong local following.
Holding The Procession up to the light, given the band and their sound a closer inspection, in the 1990’s this fair land had an indie band on every street corner, life was good then a strange television experiment took hold, Pop Idol ala X Factor was the route cause of the Bank Crises, (wish this was true) it turned them into fools, greedy ones at that. Now as the dust still refuses to settle, a pocket of something we honestly thought was forever. The Procession are a good solid indie band; I like both the ‘Sometimes’ single add this new release ‘Sun Comes Around’. You might have heard their sound before shades of bands like The Pixies, My Bloody Valentine… but that does not tell the full story of their appeal, it’s the quality of the band’s collective songwriting; bearing in mind all of the evidence I have been exposed to, interesting well proportioned songs. No choice but to add my voice to the chorus of support the band have so far earned, as it’s a bit good. 8/10
